CRS/Sudan is as dynamic and diverse, adapting with agility to the rapidly changing operational environment. Since 1978, CRS/Sudan has been assisting the people of Sudan across five core sectors across the emergency, recovery, and development spectrum. In recent years, CRS Sudan has been undergoing a transformation as new opportunity for resiliency programming emerges and the environment opens for deeper involvement of humanitarian organizations. CRS/Sudan’s three flagship programs are DFID-funded Taadoud program (2014-2022), WFP funded food security programming and USAID/FFP and OFDA funded RISING (2019-2021). Implemented in five states in Darfur, these integrated livelihoods, nutrition and natural resource management programs are implemented in consortium with INGO, national NGO, university and private sector partners are examples of this shift. BMZ-funded RAID program is another example of CRS/Sudan’s integrated resiliency programming. Sudan remains one of the world’s most protracted humanitarian crisis, in this context CRS continues to provide emergency assistance throughout Sudan with core funding from WFP, USAID/OFDA and UNICEF. Key sectoral areas for CRS/Sudan include food security, livelihoods, nutrition, health, peacebuilding and natural resource management. CRS/Sudan has an expanding portfolio of programs crossing the emergency response and resiliency spectrum. Currently CRS/Sudan oversees programming across five Darfur states and the Red Sea.
In 2020, CRS/Sudan is looking to deepen integration within and between core programs and program areas, expand geographic reach into new areas, deepen strategic partnerships with INGOs and the private sector, consolidate the CP’s position as a sector lead in resiliency programming and capitalize on the opportunities presented by the dynamically changing operational context.The 2019 Sudan revolution and COVID-19 brought with it new funding and programming opportunities. CRS/Sudan is well placed to respond due to the scope and scale of existing programming, strong reputation and solid partnerships. However, the CP currently hasinsufficient bandwidth to respond to all the opportunities in the BD pipeline.
CRS/Sudan anticipates release of a number of call for proposals from the IHA, Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF), UNICEF, Durable Solutions, UNHCR and is meanwhile preparing proposals for WFP as well as reporting for several pre-existing projects. The CP requires Business Development Consultant to support the CP to develop and finalize grant applications and reports in response to the calls of proposals. In addition, there are several reports due as per donor requirements within the coming 3 months and CRS will need support to revise and work with the PMSs/SPOs for finalizing the reports according to donor/CRS rules and regulations
